- Arenz, Boden, Niznik, Loehr, Long excel In PDTR A-main action
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 16, 2022 - On a night that produced a close-quarters brand of wheel-to-wheel competition contested on a lightning-fast racing surface, three first-time winners collected main-event hardware in a five-division Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program featuring a special appearance from the Badger Midget Auto Racing Association at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 16. In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A-main, defending PDTR 360 Sprint Car champ and current point leader Travis Arenz of Sheboygan notched his fifth main event triumph of the 2022 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track in flag-to-flag fashion. 2016 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing Micro Sprint champion Zach Boden of Cambridge posted his second career Badger Midget A-main victory in the 25-lap Badger Midget Auto Racing Association main event. Late Model newcomer Paul Niznik of Medford used a late-race pass to secure his first PDTR Late Model A-main victory in the 25-lap Sheboygan's Country B93.7 Late Model A main in his debut PDTR appearance. 2018 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Loehr of Dotyville cruised to his third 25-lap Oostburg Automotive PDTR Grand National A-main triumph of the 2022 campaign. Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls led from start to finish to earn his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory in the 25-lap Next Stop Insurance B Mod main event. Travis Arenz led the 360 Sprint Car field to the green flag from the pole position and outpowered outside front row starter Alex Pokorski of West Bend at the start of the 25-lap A main to lead the opening lap. Arenz then proceeded to open up a comfortable half-straightaway cushion over Pokorski with fourth starter Tony Wondra of Campbellsport in third. On lap 5, Pokorski got sideways and flipped into the turn four fence, while 2018 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth simultaneously flipped in turn three to bring out the red flag. On the restart, two-time PDTR champion Kurt Davis of South Milwaukee, who started seventh, moved into fourth. One lap later, the caution flag was displayed to the field for the stalled car of Bill Taylor of Boltonville in turn four. When the race resumed, Arenz again bolted into the lead while 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth, who started eighth, moved into third in the running order. Two laps later, the hard-charging Schmidt worked past Wondra to advance to second in turn four. As the leaders started to work their way through slower traffic on lap 10, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh began to make his presence felt as he moved into third on lap 15 before powering past Schmidt into second on lap 20. Meanwhile, Arenz successfully negotiated his way through the rear of the field as the laps wound down to secure his 15th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 27th career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph. McMullen had to settle for second, Schmidt was third, fifth starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum finished fourth and Davis rounded out the top five. Outside front row starter Aaron Muhle of Beaver Dam grabbed the lead with third starter Kevin Douglas of Madison slipping into second on the opening lap of the 25-lap Badger Midget A main. After Douglas drifted high in turn four lap 4, which allowed 10th starter Zach Boden and R.J. Corson of Markham, Ill. to move past and engage in a duel for second place. On lap 6, Boden used the low groove to gain second and quickly cut the gap on Muhle. Boden reeled in Muhle on lap 8 and two laps later he powered into the lead in turn two as Badger Midgets points leader Todd Kluever of Sun Prairie moved into third from his eighth starting spot. By lap 16, Boden, who owns nine PDTR Micro Sprint A-main victories, had built up a full-straightaway cushion over Muhle before the lone caution of the race appeared on lap 20 for the stalled car of Denny Smith of Mukwonago in turn four. On the restart, Boden again pulled away from Muhle on the way to his second career Badger Midget A-main victory. Muhle finished second, Kluever placed third, Corson was fourth and seventh starter Datlyn England of Springfield, Ill. placed fifth. After the initial start of the 25-lap Late Model A main was aborted for a spin involving Don Singer in turn two, outside front row starter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee bolted into the lead on the drop of the green flag with polesitter Paul Niznik following in second. On lap 2, the second and final caution flag was displayed when four-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland spun in turn two and was collected by Don Singer and Chad Ludwigson of Sheboygan Falls. The race was red flagged as Schmidt received medical assistance after exiting his car under his own power, while the cars of Singer and Ludwigson had to be separated after being wedged together in the incident. Bongiorno held the top spot on the restart with Niznik following close behind. On lap 6, four-time PDTR Late Model champ Brad Mueller of Random Lake moved into third after starting seventh. Three laps later, Mueller moved in to pressure Niznik for second. However, Niznik pulled ahead on the ensuing circuits and moved in to hound Bongiorno for the lead on lap 14. On lap 17, Niznik ducked low to pull even with the high-riding Bongiorno as the two drivers engaged in an entertaining side-by-side duel for the lead over the next six laps before Niznik finally powered his way into the lead on lap 23. Niznik held tight over the final two circuits to secure his first career PDTR Late Model A-main victory in his Plymouth Dirt Track Racing debut. Bongiorno finished second, eighth starter Charlie Schmidt of Oostburg placed third, Jim Schmidt of Cleveland moved up from the 11th starting spot to place fourth and ninth starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee finished fifth. 2010 PDTR Grand National champ Brian Gilles of Plymouth drove the Bender Racing 23K car into the lead from the pole position on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main. On lap 6, third starter Matt Loehr steered the Bender Racing 89 machine around Gilles into the lead along the high groove in turn three. Loehr then proceeded to build up a comfortable lead before the first of two caution flags appeared on lap 10 for a two-car incident in turn two involving Steven Weber of Plymouth and Mavrick Ruh of Elkhart Lake. On the restart, eighth starter Josh Pierce of Fredonia worked the high groove to move into second on lap 14. Loehr remained strong at the head of the field in the closing stages of the race en route to his 12th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Pierce finished second, sixth starter Luke Scholten of Oostburg finished third, 2019 PDTR Grand National champion Tyler Kulow of Plymouth finished fourth after starting fourth and Steven Weber recovered to finish fifth. Polesitter Shane Long seized the top spot on lap 1 of the 25-lap B Mod A main before the lone caution flag of the race was displayed on lap 3 when rookie Parker Glander of Sheboygan Falls stopped in turn two. On the restart, sixth starter Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan worked the outside groove to vault his way into fourth in turn three. Meanwhile, fifth starter and current PDTR B Mod points leader Andy Welter of Hartford and Brendan Ostrowski of Milwaukee, who started fourth, engaged in a heated duel for second before Welter assumed the runner-up spot on lap 5. Three laps later, Welter moved in to pressure Long for the lead. However, Long would have none of Welter's challenges as he proceeded to pull away to extend his lead to five car lengths on lap 15 and 10 car lengths on lap 20. Long was not to be denied as he cruised over the final five laps on the way to his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory. Welter finished second, Ostrowski wound up third, seventh starter James Rautmann of Howards Grove placed fourth and eighth starter Brian Konitzer of Sheboygan rounded out the top five. Ben Schmidt was the fastest 360 Sprint Car overall qualifier with a lap of 12.030 seconds. Zach Boden earned the Badger Midgets fast qualifier award with a lap of 13.186. Anthony Knierim of Caledonia won the 15-lap 360 Sprint Car B main. The eighth full PDTR program of the 2022 campaign, which was sponsored by Pit Stop Pizza, drew a total field of 89 cars, including 32 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, 19 Badger Midgets, 13 Late Models, 11 Grand Nationals, 14 B Mods.

- Rechek Wins BMARA Feature at Angell Park
Matt Rechek won the Badger Midget Auto Racing Association feature Sunday night at Angell Park Speedway.
- Alex Pokorski earns season-best A-main showing at Plymouth Dirt Track
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 12, 2022 - Nine days after missing out on an A-main transfer spot for the first time during the 2022 season, Alex Pokorski bounced back to record a season-best 14th-place A-main finish behind the wheel of the No. 4 Akright Auto Racing Team 360 Sprint Car, during Fan Appreciation Night at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 9. With 26 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Cars checked in for the evening, Pokorski lined up sixth in the third 10-lap heat race based on draw, after group qualifying was scrapped for the evening due to computer issues. On the opening lap, Pokorski swept around fifth starter Kevin Seidler and moved in to pressure Tyler Brabant for fourth along the low line on lap 4. After Brabant adjusted his line from the middle to the bottom of the racing surface, he pulled away from Pokorski, who went on to register a fifth-place finish, which earned him a direct transfer to the 360 Sprint Car A main based on the passing points formula. The third-year 360 Sprint Car competitor rolled off 13th in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main and moved up to 11th following a lap two caution for a five-car mishap in turn one. On the restart, Pokorski held his own just outside the top 10 during the first portion of a long 23-lap green-flag run. After the front wing of his No. 4 Akright Auto Racing Team machine became slightly dislodged Pokorski settled into the 14th spot in the running order. During the final stages of the race, Pokorski stayed consistent running primarily along the cushion on the way to a season-best 14th-place showing in a race won by Ben Schmidt. "I felt that the night went well and we made some good progress on some set-up changes," Pokorski said. "I would've liked to pick up a top-10 finish, but I needed to be a little more consistent in how I ran the cushion." Pokorski and the No. 4 Akright Auto Racing Team is set to compete in an Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association doubleheader this weekend starting at The Plymouth Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 16 with the Badger Midget Auto Racing Association joining the PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, Late Models, Grand Nationals and B Mods. Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with 360 Sprint Car hot laps/group qualifying slated for 5:30 p.m. and racing set to begin at 6 p.m. On Sunday, July 17 Pokorski and the Akright Auto Racing Team will head to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. with the Akright Auto MSA 360 Sprint Cars, along with the Badger Midgets and Wisconsin Dirt Racing Legends, as part of the Salute to Bryan Gapinski event. Spectator gates open at 4 p.m. with opening ceremonies scheduled at 6 p.m. "I'm looking forward to racing both nights of a doubleheader this weekend with the MSA on Saturday at Plymouth and Sunday at Angell Park," said Pokorski, who posted a 15th-place A-main showing in his first MSA outing of the 2022 season at Angell Park Speedway on Sunday, May 21.

- Schmidt, Scheffler, Kulow, Welter notch initial 2022 PDTR A-main triumphs
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 9, 2022 - As the 2022 campaign hit the half-way mark, four drivers paid their first visits of the season to Plymouth Dirt Track Racing victory lane in A-main competition on Fan Appreciation Night at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 9. In the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasant View Realty PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car A-main, 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Plymouth held off former track champions Travis Arenz of Sheboygan and Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh to claim his first A-main victory of the 2022 season. Taylor Scheffler of Waukesha made the most of a rare appearance at The Plymouth Dirt Track by capturing the 25-lap Sheboygan's Country B93.7 Late Model A main. 2019 PDTR Grand National champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth earned his first 2022 triumph in the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A-main. Andy Welter of Hartford rolled to his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory in the 25-lap Next Stop Insurance B Mod main event. Polesitter Justin Erickson of Plymouth led the opening lap of the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main before outside front row starter Shane Wenninger of Kewaskum used the outside groove to sweep into the lead in turn two on lap two. Seconds later, the lone caution flag of the event appeared for a five-car incident in turn one involving Tyler Brabant of Waupun, Doug Wondra of Oakfield, Tommy Colburn of New Berlin, Tony Wondra of Campbellsport and Mike Yurmanovich of Cascade. The incident knocked Colburn and Yurmanovich out of the remainder of the race, while Doug Wondra, Tony Wondra and Brabant were able to continue. On the restart, Ben Schmidt, who started fourth, worked the high line to move past Erickson into second and quickly close in on Wenninger for the lead. Three laps later, Schmidt moved within striking distance, while 2021 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current points leader Travis Arenz, who started sixth, moved into third. On lap 9, Schmidt maneuvered his way past Wenninger in turn two to take the lead, while Arenz followed suit by moving around Wenninger into second on the following lap. Over the final 16 laps, the leaders had their hands full as they sliced their way through heavy lapped traffic. As the laps wound down, Arenz worked primarily the low line to reel in the high-riding Schmidt, while two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Brandon McMullen, who started seventh, moved into third to join in a spirited three-car duel at the front of the field. With Arenz and McMullen hot on his heels, Schmidt stayed smooth and consistent to successfully negotiate a dense gaggle of slower traffic in the closing laps en route to his 14th career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and 31st career Midwest Sprint Car Association main event triumph. Arenz had to settle for second, McMullen finished third, Wenninger placed fourth and Erickson wound up fifth. Polesitter Joe Bongiorno of Milwaukee took the lead at the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap Late Model main event. On lap 2, outside front row starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee used the low line to pressure the cushion-running Bongiorno for the top spot. As Bongiorno and Letizia continued to wage an early duel at the front of the pack, Taylor Scheffler, who started fourth, dove low to move past Letizia into second on lap 5. Scheffler then bolted past Bongiorno to assume the lead in turn one on lap six. The first of two caution flags appeared later on lap 6 for the slowing car of Charlie Schmidt Oostburg along the backstretch. On the restart, Scheffler worked the preferred outside groove to open up a full straightaway cushion over Bongiorno. The second and final caution flag was displayed on lap 16 when Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls spun in turn two. Late Model rookie Bill Edler of Howards Grove charged up to briefly take second in the running order on the restart before four-time defending PDTR Late Model champion and current point leader Justin Schmidt of Cleveland, who started 10th, used a low move to take second from Edler on lap 17, Schmidt cut into Scheffler's lead over the final eight circuits, but he was not able to mount a serious challenge as Scheffler went on to notch his sixth career PDTR Late Model A-main victory in his second appearance of the 2022 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track. Outside front row starter Steven Weber of Plymouth grabbed the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap Grand National A main. On lap 3, fourth starter Tyler Kulow moved into second with current PDTR Grand National point leader Luke Scholten of Oostburg moving into third from his sixth starting position. The first of three caution flags was displayed on lap 5 for debris in turn four. On lap restart, Scholten used the high line to move around Kulow and pressure Weber for the top spot. Weber and Scholten battled side by side over the next several circuits as 2010 PDTR Grand National champion Brian Gilles of Plymouth, who started fifth, moved the Bender Racing No. 89 car into third on lap 9. The second caution flag appeared on lap 10 when Scott Kafka of Kiel spun along the backstretch. On the restart, Kulow worked his way past Scholten into second as Weber built up a solid half-straightaway lead at the front of the field. With three laps remaining, Weber's machine began to slow, which allowed Kulow close the gap significantly. After slight contact with Kulow and the third-place car of Gilles on lap 23, the third and final caution flag of the race flew when Weber stopped along the backstretch and Gilles slowed with a flat right front tire. With Weber out of the race, Kulow inherited the lead and he maintained the top spot over the final two circuits on the way to his 11th career PDTR Grand National A-main victory. Scholten finished second, 2008 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Yancey of Sheboygan, who started third, finished third, Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake, who started seventh, placed fourth and Gilles recovered to finish fifth. After the initial start was aborted for a fourth car incident involving Shane Long of Sheboygan Falls, Jonathan Hitsman of Newton, Rory Welch of Grafton and Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls, James Rautmann of Howards Grove seized the top spot from the pole position on the opening lap of the 25-lap B Mod A main. On lap 5, third starter Travis Schmidt of Waldo worked the low line to move into second in turn one. By lap 10, Schmidt pulled up to challenge Rautmann for the top spot as the leaders held tight to the low groove. The second caution flag was presented on lap 15 when Steve Lorier of Sheboygan spun in turn two. On the restart, Andy Welter made his presence felt as he moved up from his fifth starting spot to pressure Schmidt's slowing car for second on lap 17. The third and final caution flag appeared on lap 16 for a four car incident in turn three involving Jonathan Hitsman, Spencer Long, Patrick Hansen of Sheboygan Falls and Matthew Roehl of Fond du Lac. Welter took second from Schmidt following the final restart on lap 17 and quickly set his sights on Rautmann. On lap 20, Welter powered his way past Rautmann into the lead in turn two. Welter then pulled away to earn his first career PDTR B Mod A-main victory and assume the point lead in the B Mod division at The Plymouth Dirt Track. Sixth starter Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan rode the high line to a second-place finish, Rautmann placed third, third starter Brandon Knepprath of Boltonville took fourth and Steve Lorier bounced back after restarting at the rear of the field on lap 15 to round out the top five. Butch Hafemann of Campbellsport captured the special 12-lap Vintage Modified A main. Bill Taylor of Boltonville won the 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main. The seventh full PDTR program of the 2022 campaign, which was sponsored by Butch and Blondie Hafemann, drew a total field of 68 cars, including 26 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, 12 Late Models, 8 Grand Nationals, 14 B Mods and 8 Vintage Modifieds. The next PDTR racing program on Saturday, July 16 will include the first of two scheduled appearances of the 2022 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track for the Badger Midget Auto Racing Association, in addition to the PDTR 360 Sprint Cars, Late Models, Grand Nationals and B Mods. Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with 360 Sprint Car hot laps/group qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing to begin at 6 p.m. for the PDTR program sponsored by Pit Stop Pizza on July 16.
